Lehigh Gorge State Park is in Luzerne and Carbon counties. The park follows the Lehigh River from the outlet of the Francis E. Walter Dam at the northern end, to the town of Jim Thorpe at the southern end. A deep gorge, steep walls and thick vegetation, rock outcroppings and many waterfalls characterize the entire park. Lehigh Gorge Trail, 26 miles of abandoned railroad grade, follows the river throughout the park providing opportunities for hiking, bicycling, sight-seeing and photography. The northern section from the Francis E. Walter Dam to Sandy Run is stocked with trout.
